BBC Two Scotland
is a television station
operated by BBC Scotland
. It is broadcast via digital television and is the sister Scottish channel of BBC One Scotland
Although listed as a separate station by some guides, 'BBC Two Scotland' and 'BBC Two Scotland (Digital)' are effectively the same channel, broadcasting identical feeds as part of the moves to digital-only switchover.
Similarly to BBC One Scotland, BBC Two Scotland offers differing programming from the UK-wide network specifically aimed at Scottish viewers. Often, this is more specialised programming such as Artworks Scotland
, Holyrood Live
and the Gaelic strands branded as BBC Two (Dhà) Alba
. Also, on weeknights, Newsnight Scotland
opts out of the main Newsnight
programme from 11 o'clock onwards.
During the daytime and overnight schedules, BBC Scotland replaces some of the national education programming for shows better targeted at the separate Scottish education
system and replacing some politics strands with coverage of Scottish politics. BBC Sport Scotland will sometimes use BBC Two Scotland to broadcast live coverage of more minority sports, such as athletics
, with some sports such as mountain biking
showcased in The Adventure Show
.Additionally, on Sunday nights BBC Two Scotland has become the regular home for Sportscene
's highlights of the SPL, preceding Match of The Day 2.
Recent examples of BBC Two Scotland programmes include:
- ArtWorks Scotland
- Dè a-nis?
